Playworks Joins Forces to Expand Support for Youth Programs Across the Country

Together, Let’s #InvestInKids

Playworks has teamed up with 12 of the nation’s leading youth programs to launch Be a Champion, #InvestInKids to raise awareness and increase support for youth programs across the country. Every day, these programs reach millions of kids across the U.S. and make a positive impact in their communities and the world around them. Organizations like Playworks connect the next generation to opportunities for play, education, skill development, leadership, and more, helping young people make friends, strengthen their communities, and build self-confidence.

All of the programs in this collaboration are working to enable young people to learn about themselves and build a strong foundation for a healthy, productive life. These programs and our kids need champions. Every adult has the opportunity to be a champion for youth in their lives and in their communities. We invite you to be one of those champions by donating to support our work.
